5 Games That Need A Sequel
Grim Fandango, Monkey Island, Full Throttle and Psychonauts; what do they all have in common? Well they’re all the products of that zany brain child Tim Schafer; that and they’re all brilliant examples of what a game is meant to be. The thing about Psychonauts is that playing it just made me want a sequel above all else is; actually, I think it perfectly lends itself to a sequel. Monkey Island has done its job and the other adventures ended perfectly; but for Pyschonauts, well I want more. The insane premise of Psychonauts and frankly brilliant character delivery made it seem like an episode straight out of Invader Zim; or spiritual successor to Earth Worm Jim. Even better was it did everything about a semi-free roam platformer right and there’s so much potential to expand on that with current-gen consoles.
Give it a crisper Saturday morning cartoon look, full it to the brim with the same voice talent that gave us the original and don’t hold back on the story; I promise it’d blow your mind (pun intended).
So that’s my little list, though I’d love to have been able to add so many more; I might just do that actually. Anyway, let me know what you think and what I missed out. Do you agree with these and do you think sequels would ruin the memories we so dearly cherish. Or are you like me and want a sequel to every game you ever loved, despite the possibility some may suck. I know I’d give up Adam’s right arm to get these made, what would you give up?
